We invite companies around the world to participate
Transparency is key to promote continual improvement.What is the Environmental Paper Company Index?
The index is one of WWF's transparency tools which allows producers of paper and pulp to publicly share their ecological footprint.
How is the index different to the WWF's Check Your Paper database?
The EPCI method is not product specific like WWF's Check Your Paper transparency tool, but looks at environmental aspects in a company´s policies and targets as well as the environmental performance of the overall production of a specific paper product category (Newsprint, Graphic paper, Houshold and Sanitary, Packaging paper and boards, Pulp).
It includes the environmental performance from own pulp and paper production as well as, if any, performance of market pulp purchased.
Companies will be applauded for transparency and progressAll participating companies will be applauded for their transparency, which is more important than actual results in this exercise. Participating shows that environmental performance and transparency is of importance to the company.
The WWF rating will enable participants to identify where improvements can be made. Subsequent ratings will show progress made.
